Actually, this is a GlossPost survey Sep 10, 2005

It would help the GP admin immensely to know to what extent your computers are protected, since many glossaries contributed to the collection can come with pop-ups, banners and the like.

(We are currently operating on a principle of minimum risk. This means there is a tendency to reject such contributions.)

Yes Sep 10, 2005

When I was using IE, I had left pop-up killing job to the Google toolbar, and was satisfied with it. Now I am on Firefox, which is safer anyway, but as I cannot install Google toolbar on it I have downloaded XoftSpy, which not only blocks pop-ups, but is effective against other kinds of malware, adware, whatever. Frequent database updates is a bit boring though, but I care more about security issues now after having had a couple of minor catastrophes - retarded parent syndrome, you know, by the time you realize you no longer have a toddler around, they are already downloading MP3's.
